Thanks for the speedy replies but am i right in thinking that its the GIGABYTE SATA2 Driver i need for the f6 install during os install? i only ask as its a .exe file and i thought it was some other file type used and also its bigger than 3mb when i thought it was smaller to accommdate the use of a floppy?

***my bad its a self extraction file****

RAz

the exe may need to de-compress before. double click and save to folder. see what happens

Whats the score with dual booting with raid 0? I guess i install the older OS(xp 32bit) first with the 32bit xp driver and then install windows 7 64bit on a seperate partition with the 64bit driver. My real question is will this cause any kind of conflicts etc if using some of the drive partitions(1250gb drive numerous partitions) as communal drives. Is there anything i need to be wary of when running these two os at different "bits" within the same physical drives?

They should be on the driver disk too. They have directions on how to do it in my manual (P55-UD4P)
